Star Party 2010 – Watch the Stars, Light the Night

Are you coming to Dragon*Con this year? If so, you should seriously consider coming in a day early and attending the Atlanta Skeptics 2nd Annual Charity Star Party. We had such a great time last year, we had to do it again! This year’s entertainment includes renowned astronomers and hosts of AstronomyCast, Pamela Gay and Fraser Cain with special appearance by musician George Hrab! We’re also hopeful that our own fearless leader Rebecca will be hosting the event. Plus, the Emory University Physics department is sponsoring the event and will be showing off their observatory and telescopes.

This event is in honor of Jeff Medkeff, the Blue Collar Scientist, astronomer, skeptic and friend to many of us. Jeff succumbed to liver cancer in 2008. All proceeds will go toward the Light the Night Fund: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in Jeff’s name.

Food, drinks and conversations with astronomers. What more could you ask for? Oh yeah, star gazing!

We have a bit more space than we did last year but tickets will sell out. Get them while you can! Tickets on sale here.
